15% of Sony Sab's new show expense is for marketing: Vyas

NEW DELHI: Around 15 per cent of the total budget of Sony Sab TV’s new show ‘Shankar Jai Kishan – 3-in-1’ will go into marketing on all platforms, according to SAB and MAX cluster of channels SVP and head Neeraj Vyas.

Vyas told indiantelevision.com that it had been decided when re-branding the channel that it should continue to remain a niche channel for Indian comedy shows. He said Sab TV had lesser hours of original content than some other general entertainment channels primarily because it wanted to become a brand in the comedy space.

He said that it was interesting that the World of Happiness Index had listed India at number 118 out of 150 countries and even nations like Pakistan were higher on the list. This made channels like Sab TV all the more relevant, he said.

‘Shankar Jai Kishan – 3-in-1’ is slated to be telecast from Monday to Friday from 8 August at 10.00 pm.

The series is the fictional story about a paralyzed widow and her triplets, Shankar, Jai and Kishan. Their life takes bewildering turns when in an accident only Kishan survives, and je has to camouflage the truth by living three lives. How Kishan manages this triple role and juggles between each character is the real twist to the story.

Set in Delhi, the story centers on Kishan, played by Kettan Singh, a real estate agent and a perfect ‘Jugaadu’ in its true sense; a typical Delhi boy who finds a solution to every situation. Kishan dotes on his mother, enacted by Asawari Joshi, who is wheelchair bound due to a stroke she got on hearing news of her husband’s sudden death. Kishan, who loses his brothers Shankar and Jai in an accident, decides to hide the truth from his mother on his friend Babbar’s (Hemant Pandey) advice and lives all the three lives to prevent his mother from yet another shock.

Living the life of three is not easy! Shankar is a poised veterinary doctor who talks in fluent Hindi, whereas Jai is a rowdy police inspector. Each being a separate identity, Kishan juggles between the three lives. However, his life turns upside down when his mother emotionally blackmails him to marry and he ends up marrying three sisters, Twinkle, Dimple and Simple.

The cast includes Kettan Singh, Hemant Pandey, Falak Naaz, Kirtida Mistry and Chitrashi Rawat who were all present and enacted a sequence from the serial.

Vyas said this show has the right mix of comedy, mischief and drama. The hilarious situations that arise when the protagonist is seen juggling and managing three characters is worth watching. The concept is fresh and compelling; I hope the viewers love it too.

Swastik Productions founder and creative director Siddharth Tewari said this was the first time on television that a series is made where the lead character enacts three completely different characters every day of his life just to keep his mother happy. Just like every action has an equal and opposite reaction, what ensues is a total laugh riot. We have had a lot of fun in creating it, and I am certain the viewers will enjoy every aspect of the series.
